Step back in time to when going out for dinner meant something really special. From the decor to the jazz music, Wildfire has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for celebrating with friends or a quiet evening for two. The extensive menu features broiled steaks and chops, wood-roasted seafood and roasted meats, all prepared in an open kitchen. Signature dishes include Horseradish Crusted Filet Mignon, Macadamia Nut Crusted Halibut, Wildfire Chopped Salad and Cedar Planked Salmon. So order a signature martini or one of our many wines by the glass, then sit back and enjoy the 1940s supper club experience of Wildfire.

I had a wonderful dinner with two beautiful women. We were celebrating my gal's birthday. The Chopped Salad, The Bison Meatballs, the Cornbread, the Filet Mignon and the Halibut were all excellent. The service was also fantastic. Just a phenomenal evening.

My significant other and myself were celebrating our birthdays. We opted for lunch to secure a reservation. Food was good as always, my Martini flight was not that great; the ingredients for the raspberry and the stormy martini had changed; tasted like medicine. The service was okay; the waiter was not welcoming nor engaged; just performed his duties as a task. I’m a “lover” of Wildfire and will return; just hope the ingredients for the martini flights will be what’s listed on the flight card.

The Food and service at Wildfire were superb. My girlfriend and I like to try quality restaurants out for date night and Wildfire did not disappoint, even with the Covid restrictions and curfew.
Definitely get your steak/filet Parmesan or Blue Cheese crusted!! Their Manhattan is good but STRONG so sip slow lol.
Only critique is that Wildfire’s crowd is kind of casual so it may get a little loud. It was 3 people’s birthdays and they all sang happy birthday at the top of their lungs.

It was what you’d expect from a high end dinning experience. The Porter House was excellent, the service was impeccable and the bar was spot on. Didn’t care for the side items or the salad but the steak was phenomenal. And although we chose anniversary for our reason with the reservation it wasn’t recognized and ironically both tables to the left and right were celebrating and they both were recognized and wished a happy anniversary. We felt left out.

Service was above average however the food was below average. Pork chops were one cooked and my son’s medium rare sirloin came out medium well. They fixed the sirloin issue. Bison meatballs were extremely disappointing and were likely frozen at some point. At half the price this might be acceptable.

My husband and I came to Wildfire for a date night for the first time since our little girl was born. Our experience there was very enjoyable, we had the pleasure of being waited on by Alan. He was very pleasant, accommodating, and was very knowledgeable of the menu. My husband ordered the porterhouse steak and I had the mushroom crusted pork chops. We both throughly enjoyed our food. My husband steak was juicy and very tender. I had a similar experience with my food. Overall we had superb service and very delicious food. We will definitely be coming back.

Adult entrees were great. Would have loved twice baked crust option. Children’s meals were overcooked and sat under the lamps for 15 minutes. Phillip our server was very nice and made wife’s birthday special.

OK river north location. Menu selection very good. Had the Medallions DUO, requested medium well and that's how it was served. French Fries very very good. Wife had the Macadamia nut crusted Halibut with Asparagus and it too has perfectly prepared. Service was attentive and friendly. Eerily quiet. Fan of their music.

I wasn't satisfied with my food. My baked potato was overcooked and temperature wise lukewarm. I thought for the price of my salmon it would be a little bit bigger. My guest enjoyed their meal.

This was my first time. It’s not a high end steak house but it gets the job done. The atmosphere is nice but it’s a little overpriced in my opinion. The server was amazing.

Everything was Top Notch. I don't mind a smaller crowd due to Covid. The service was always available for every request. The steaks extra juicy, served with it's natural juices unlike other Steakhouses. Don't overlook the Pork Chops!!! Wholeheartedly recommend and will visit again!

Our waiter was very attentive even though it was pretty busy. Any questions regarding the food was answered prior to ordering. The food was cooked to perfection and we enjoyed it. This was our first time out since restaurants have re-opened during covid-19 so we were a little nervous. However, we felt safe with the distance of the tables and all the staff was wearing masks. I am looking forward to my next visit to Wildfire.

Me and my family have dined at wildfire on numerous occasions and the experience has always been good. But me and my son was very disappointed. We felt like we were put in a dark room that was specific to one race. I hope this was not deliberate as I stated me and my family have always enjoyed our experience with wildfire. Secondly with the number of people in that room there was no social distancing. When we got up to leave there was no room between the people and the table for us to walk safely through.

Sad to see such a great restaurant half full because of Covid-19. When ever we come to Chicago, wildfire is a must stop!
